Followed the trail with a very enjoyable walk on a sunny day. Most definitely worth a visit - Rosaleen and Siobhan very helpful and informative. Will pay a return visit next time in Ireland.

“Beautiful Peaceful Place...”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Lovely peaceful place to relax and spend some time to recharge. Well worth the visit if you're in the area. No matter what the weather take some walking shoes, a picnic and your all set. The knowledgeable staff in the bright new visitors centre are very friendly, welcoming and helpful, especially Rosaleen and Heloise.

“Definately worth a visit!!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We went on the folklore walking tour today at Lough Gur where we were entertained by fairies, banshee's and Queen Aine and lots more, giving us some lovely stories and information about the history and folklore of Lough Gur and also some beautiful scenery. The walking tour takes about 2hrs and you finish up back at the visitors center where you can relax with a cup of tea/ coffee and have a look at the museum. A great day out for the family and great value for money. Very Enjoyable.

“family trip”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Lough Gur is a fantastic day out for the family. Lovely picnic areas, walks, cafe, museum and the scenery. Even an opportunity to feed the ducks or swans . You can even row on the lake but you have to bring you own boat. Have to say a lovely scenic part of Ireland. And the community work hard on the up keep of the park as volunteers. It's a must .
If you stay at the Charleville Park Hotel it's about 25 min drive towards Limerick.
